As the different "representations" are served from different URIs,  
which we can discover, can I assume that a web document can be both a  
"resource" and a "representation" at the same time?

An if this is the case, can we therefore conclude, by your  
instruction, that same document has two URIs, i.e. that URI aliasing  
is a necessary consequence of content negotiation?
